Match Officials


man in the middle

The referee and his fellow match officials are entrusted with a weighty role - to apply the rules of our games. Gaelic Games is unique in that the team of match officials consists of a referee, two linesmen, four umpires and the sideline official.

The essential role, responsibility and privilege of the team of match officials is to apply the rules in order to create the conditions for our games to be played well. Proper application of the rules creates these conditions. In that way we will value those players that play with skill, courage, commitment, genius, flair, strength and legitimate aggression.

This section provides information on all aspects of relevance to match officials, from the playing rules of hurling and football to the role of the referee, linesman, umpire and sideline official.
